Ms. Nulty’s class have been busy with an inquiry-based learning project. The children spent two weeks investigating and finding out the different things that mini-beasts need to grow and stay healthy. The children explored investigative equipment then used this equipment to observe bugs and insects in both the school garden and Stanaway Park. The children found out that our school garden is full of lady birds which must be kept safe. They then decided to make bug-hotels for the ladybirds and different mini-beasts in the school garden that may be in danger of getting stood on, thrown and killed. At the end of the project, the children made posters in groups to inform other classes how we can keep the ladybirds in our school garden safe. As this project was inquiry-based, the children found out all of the information all by themselves, without the help of Ms. Nulty. All the children had great fun!
